Seems like things are coming along nicely for the launch of Verizon's downloadable visual voicemail service
, with some preliminary information briefly hitting VZW's interwebs before seemingly being pulled. As we'd previously heard, a retooled LG Voyager -- creatively named Voyager Refresh -- will be one of the first devices to get access to the service, while current Voyager
owners will be able to download the app required to get hooked up.
Unlike what we'd previously heard, though, it seems that Verizon has opted to offer the service at no additional monthly service charge (a wise move, may we add)
. Since the entire lowdown has been taken offline, there's no telling exactly when we're actually supposed to know that VVM exists or when we might be able to sign up for it, but all indications suggest it'll be sooner rather than later.
We're hearing that the $2.99 / month fee is still in effect. For shame, Verizon!
